I noticed these beautiful fruit trees in bloom on the Hofstra campus this last day of January.  I wonder if anyone else is noticing any early blooms of fruit trees around the country.

Here is a link to a cool website some of you may enjoy--the National Phenology Network that seeks to keep track of long-term trends in plant and animal behavior.  They have some great resources and visualizations.  You can also join the network and upload your own information for your area.
